Over the past year my main economics / tech guru has been Professor Scott Galloway.
He summarized his thinking in a new book:
I’ve not been so optimistic about the future since February 2020.
IF we can survive another 6 months or so — psychologically, financially — we could see another boom like the Roaring Twenties.
A new Roaring Twenties.
… a period of economic prosperity … Everything seemed possible through modern technology …
That’s how people reacted after the pandemic of 1918.
We got lucky this time. Vaccine technology has improved so quickly that I’m likely to get the Oxford before having to join the herd immunity segment of the population.
IF the majority of the population has either had the virus or taken one of the vaccines, I might be able to avoid it myself.
IF only 5% of those who were infected have lifelong problems — and most of those not too serious — …
OK. This is the most optimistic scenario.
Hope for the best. Plan for the worst.
